Take their car away from them for 2 years.Drivers licence for 6 months.
Let's see how they like that! ha ha ha ha .
No jail time, the jails are full and unless someone is hurt badly.Then throw them in jail.
Just take away the car....Hit them where it really hurts, and by the time they have another car and do it again, no car again for 2 years.No licence for 3 years.
Street Racers are a problem and there has been many deaths that involved pedestrians. I think the punishment should fit the crime.
It should be zero tolerance and there should be harsher penalties. When I hear of fatalities that come out of this speed racing craze, I think that this alone justifies much stricter punishments. Aside from the punishment itself, I also believe in getting to the route of the problem, and doing more education up front. More children/teenagers need to be educated about the issue so that when faced with peer pressure to join in etc, they can make the best possible (and educated) choice.
In my area, we've got speed humps up and down all the long streets to deter them. It seems to have worked for us, though a little inconvenient for everyone else on the road.
I think it would be great to have places where people could legally and safely have fun in their cars. I believe there was something similar proposed in Adelaide recently.

I don't think that jail time is the answer in many cases, but agree that taking away cars and licences is a good way to try and curb this on regular streets.
Cars impounded, then crushed.
Best lesson of all, as it hits them in the hip pocket for many reasons'.
